or developmental disabilities.

"There are more than 4 million people in the United States who have an intellectual or developmental disability," Savage said. "They are a disenfranchised group in the health care system, and many of these individuals are left out of decision-making regarding their own health care, especially at the end of their life."

Savage and her research team will conduct focus groups with developmentally disabled patients, support staff caregivers and family caregivers to learn about their perceptions of end-of-life care.

Other College of Nursing faculty with leadership roles in the new center are Sandy Burgener, associate professor of medical-surgical nursing; Laura Szalacha, research assistant professor of public health, mental health, and administrative nursing; Marquis Foreman, professor of medical-surgical nursing; and Gail Keenan, associate professor of public health, mental health and administrative nursing. An interdisciplinary group of UIC faculty from the health sciences and computer sciences will also participate in the new center.
